Schoolhouse Cabin in Eagle Harbor, MI.
I have nothing but praise for the rental company and the property. Their response was prompt. The check-in and check-out process was easy and straight forward. The property was as presented and ready for our arrival. I would have no second thoughts or hesitation in renting through this company in the future.

Schooolhouse Cottage
This unit is in a nice location - close to the lighthouse and lighthouse museum. The unit is a nice size, well kept, and comfortable for two people. It appears to be the largest cabin of the site. We would stay there again.

As good as it gets for under $200/night!!!
The mechanical is is perfect shape and nicely decorated with excellence. There is nothing that could be done to make this more comfortable. Clean, no bugs, screens in all four directions and lots of little fans. Hot water, WIFI and every imaginable kitchen gadget.

What a lovely place to stay, again!
Our 2017 stay was so pleasing that we repeated this year. Schoolhouse is excellent for two; well-equipped Kitchen with appliances, cooking implements and supplies, 1 minute walk to the Freshwater laundry and trash bins, Queen bed and a small but well organized bathroom. Great housekeeping with everything clean; crisp linens and plenty of towels, etc.

FRESHWATER RESPONSE:

Ray we love our repeat guests!  Thanks for this great review and we'll look for you again next year!

Nice location for exploring the Keeweenaw Peninsula
The Schoolhouse cottage is in a nice location in Eagle Harbor. Steps away from the light house, a view of the harbor and beach out the front window. The Eagle Harbor Inn / Restaurant is a short walk down the street. You are within 30 to 45 minutes from the attractions in the Keeweenaw. The cottage has a living room, bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. It was clean and is nicely furnished.



FRESHWATER RESPONSE:
Philip, we are so happy that Schoolhouse Cottage fit your needs for your vacation.  We love being so close to the lighthouse.  We hope to see you again at one of our properties.

adorable cottage steps away from the beach and sunset views and a short drive from great sights
This cottage was exactly what we were looking for on a recent trip for just my wife and I. It is a short drive from Copper Harbor, Ft. Wilkins, Brockaway Mountain and more. Each night we walked 300 yards to the viewing platform by the lighthouse to watch the sun set over Lake Superior - awesome! Without a doubt we'd stay here again.

 FRESHWATER RESPONSE:

Stephen, aren't lighthouses the best!  Lake Superior has it's own magic, and then you add a lighthouse and a sunset and words cannot describe its magnificence.  We are so glad that you liked the Schoolhouse Cottage, and we'll be even happier to see you again.  Remember that returning guests get a 10% discount.

Eagle Harbor - My Happy Place
I absolutely love Eagle Harbor and the Schoolhouse Cottage was a wonderful little cottage to stay in while there. You can't beat the fantastic view from the porch and it's perfect location near the lighthouse. It was clean and had all that you need for a comfortable stay. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. Can't wait to go back!

FRESHWATER RESPONSE:

We love that Eagle Harbor School House Cottage is your happy place!  The lighthouses in MI are so special, and being as close as you are from the School House makes staying there even more memorable.

Cozy, Comfortable
Schoolhouse Cottage was a cute little place. Had everything we needed. Quiet, cozy and a great view of Eagle Harbor Bay. There is a very nice restaurant within a couple blocks of the cottage. A word of caution, my OnStar took me to Copper Harbor down some dirt road. Be sure to go to Eagle Harbor as the owners instructions tell you. It is on the west side of the bay.

FRESHWATER RESPONSE:
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts! We are so happy you had a great time! Lake Superior is such a beautiful view! We hope to see you again in the future!

One week stay in early August 2017
Every bit as good as described and pictured. Exceptionally equipped kitchen. Hope to rent Schoolhouse (or Doc's) next year, perhaps for a longer stay. Caretakers Barb and Alan are super! They care equally for the property and for the guests; very conscientious.

Spontaneity Rewarded!
My mother and I were planning on camping up near Eagle Harbor but were detered by the relentless flies. After some online digging, we came across the Schoolhouse listing and fell in love. It was a perfect spot for Keweenaw adventuring and so close to the Jampot. The accommodations were cute and clean and the customer service was so helpful, even as we arrived after hours. Thanks so much!
